You underrate Havarti. The fact that it's widely produced (see "Cheddar") doesn't make true Havarti bad, or even mushy.

Fiendish

I hope it will not be a breach of the peace (and quiet) if I say: Go Seahawks. With no other rooting interest, having a QB from BC wins the all-important endorsement of myself (and my legions). If the refs make some bad calls against the Steelers, chalk it up to a Fiendish plot.

I went to the grocery store today and could not find any Havarti cheese. Although the cheese selection is pathetic. One can't even find Chihuahua cheese, and this in a store that plays Mexican muzak to enhance the shopping experience.

I'm not underating havarti at all. It is what it is and billions if not gazillions of people love it. Cheddar is an apples to oranges comparison. There are some artisanal havartis made here but those are not true Danish havartis. Those are still plastic wrapped as there is no such thing as a brine rind, cloth wrapped or even cocoa dusted havarti. It is purely institutional. Cheddar, on the other hand, ranges from the boiled milk industrial plastic wrapped variety to smaller factory made wax wrapped to raw cow's milk farmhouse cloth bound varieties. Every form of cheddar varies greatly in flavor, texture and smell.

Fiendish, Seahawks are fine because the coach was the old coach of my favorite team as well as the Patriots connection with the QB. We are backing the Steelers today as it would be nice to see The Chin win at long last. I understand that if one of the teams manages to score in the first two drives, that team will probably win the game.

Misspent, maybe people are buying the havarti in support of Denmark.

QQ, I'm certainly glad you came to the defense of Havarti. I been enjoying some with my wine while I've been sitting here watching the pre-game show. (The Havarti, by the way, was in a basket of several cheeses personally selected by Chef Lafleur from the DAC. His favorites!)

Mrs. Peperium

What, pray tell, were the other cheeses the chef selected for you? This will indicate exactly what the man thinks of you.

Card's wife

Bleu d'Auvergne, Vacherin Mont d'Or and Montrachet.

Fiendish

I'm allergic to cheese. Otherwise, I would spend the next few hours exchanging ideas about them with the PP crew. But, since I cannot help on the topic of choice...

Mrs. Peperium

Who is the maker of the Vacherin Mont d'Or?

Mrs. Peperium

Fiendish, allergies to oysters and cheese? Wow, that was probably more hindering to your dating life than the 10 Commandments.

Card's wife

I don't know. But the label on the basket says Quatrehomme.

Mrs. Peperium

Card's Wife, the Vacherin Mont d'Or, was the inspired piece of cheese (especially if unpasteurized but highly unlikely due to age of cheese and legality) that Chef The Flower hand selected for you. The others, which are no doubt thoroughly enjoyable, are basic comercially-made cheeses, particularly the Montrachet and the Havarti.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with commercially made cheese. Whatever would the poor eat without it?

Misspent

Whoo hoo! Steelers win! Here's to the Primanti Brothers sandwiches (truly a delightfully American sandwich)! Whoo hoo! I had a lot of beerr while watching the game with a classmate! Whoo hoo!

The Bud commercials were aweseom! The Sprint commerical where the guy threw the phone at the guy was awesome! WHoo hoo!

This is the trouble with blogs: a post is made about something important, but all that gets discussed is something banal (cheese). Mind you, that pretty much sums up the US response to the "Danish cartoon crisis" - diplomats hiding under a roquefort.

Mrs. Peperium

Can't agree with you more. I haven't seen today's deveoplment yet but there was a message on my answering machine about Pittsburgh burning. Why?
